Tales of Graces F Buying Strategy

Oh, and question for y'all. Normally, as you see with the Final Fantasy Example in the cheap games thread, I like to wait for a while, and get the games on sale. However, with Atlus, Nintendo First part, NIS games and the such, I usualy get there's a decent change they don't go down for a long time or even go up due to limited print runs. So, my question is, What about Tales of Graces F for the PS3? Do you think it will go down rather quickly like FF13-2, or stay the same/go up like Radiant Historia?

    I think Namco would be much more likely to do a limited print run than Square Enix (they did for Tales of the Abyss 3DS), so it's unlikely it'll have the same drop-off XIII-2 had, which was a guaranteed seller. It probably won't quite be as limited as Radiant Historia, so I'd think there may well be a bit of a drop-off after a bit, but probably not all that much of one.

    edit - worth saying that guesswork is based from my view from the UK market, so it may be a bit different in NA.

    I've been there. Its not fun :( One thing I started doing a while back is writing down the games I want as they come out (I can never afford them all anyway). Then, later on when they fall in price and/or I have spending money, I grab them. It's really neat seeing a game at $60 that I would have got, and instead, get it at $20 . Fun times.

    Oh, I've also used Goozex when I was really broke. You might want to check into that.

    The way I judge this is if Wal-Mart sells it. If Wal-Mart does not then it will probably be rare because they did not print enough for mass market (Tales of Graces, Radiant Historia). If Wal-Mart carries the game it will be cheap a few months down the road because they printed a crap load of the game (Final Fantasy13-2, Dark Souls). The exception is Nintendo published games, they never go down in price unless they put them in the bestseller line of games (Mario 64 DS a launch title for the system is still full price).

    I did exactly this with FF13. It will take longer, but Graces F will definitely get there.

    Tales of Vesperia(Xbox), price went down, but I think it took a couple of years so... It propably will go down with time, but I myself cant wait that long if I can play it now(specialy a Tales of Game) other games can wait(I am still waiting for Rune Factory PS3 prices to drop)
